animals, their pets, because it's the big equalizer. no matter what your status is, people are pet lovers and they bring so much joy to all of our lives. so i think it should be a wonderful show. >> that's a really good way to say it. an equalizer. yeah, i think ultimately the show is going to be funny. we have a lot of funny segments. a lot of just -- we have a cutest puppy, because you can't have a dog show without cutest puppy. it's really -- it these dogs make you laugh and they connect, like you said, they connect everybody. so i think it's a fun show and i can't believe it actually hadn't been done before. >> i think it's appropriate to have it on thanksgiving. once again, happy thanksgiving to you. we are looking forward to the show. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> again, fox's cause for paws, an all-star dog spectacular airs tonight right here on ktvu channel 2 at 8 p.m. this has never been done before. they have never had a show on prime time tv just for pets.

8:19 am
higher clouds and some patchy fog. so the haze which started a couple days ago, fog, clouds, high clouds later this afternoon t it looks like high clouds as well will drift in. mostly clear. partly cloudy. 74 at kickoff time. 50s later on. you can see everything is lifting up and over. we have to wait for this to kind of swing in underneath. that won't be until late friday, saturday morning. a scenario that's setting up that could be wet or wet for a little bit and then delayed. no consensus past sunday. a lot of these higher clouds, mostly cloudy to the north. fog underneath that as well. especially in parts of mendocino county. fair to the south. very cold throughout much of bismarck and minneapolis i mean, it's been below zero for many. omaha, down to dallas even. now the colder air has moved in. boston is okay. hartford okay. new york city getting snow right now. and there is rain in the pacific
8:20 am
northwest from seattle to portland to medford. it's lifting just north of crescent city as well. 40s on the temps or 50s. these will rebound into the 60s to near 70 degrees. some of the higher elevations are very warm. 50s to almost 60 degrees in part of the santa cruz mountains. 30s to 60s depending on the elevation. 51 loss aloe hills. 41 san mateo. 41 ukiah. 45 fresno. even sacramento everyone is in there pretty close. it is weakening the ridge of high pressure. the rain won't be in until late friday for some to the north. more likely saturday for us. the key will be if we can get this system to ton punch in on sunday. if we do, wet get some rain into monday. my concern is it will be delayed a little bit as it digs offshore and puts on the air brakes, if you will. 60s. also 70s on these temps. the only concern really for the sierra nevada to saturday would
8:21 am
be an in-- increase in the breeze. rain will make it here saturday. cloudy, windy, possible rain for us on sunday into monday. timing though very difficult right now. >> sunday could be a tough getaway day for folks. >> coming home could be a mess or could be just fine. well, it is 8:20. premade or homemade? that's the question many people are asking this season. the new trend for grocery stores and what it could cost consumers. my son is a miracle. >> up next, little sebastian survived a 200-foot call in sonoma county. the one milestone his mom told us he is still waiting for. this is ladainian tomlinson ann from kandahar, afghanistan, just wishing a happy thanksgiving to my family in sunnyvale, california. female announcer: when you see this truck,

through here. 26,000 people again signed up for this race. just a huge event. it's also a charity event. they have raised more than $4 million in the years they have been doing this. and this year they are hoping to raise another $1 million for five local charities. this event is going to be going on for the next couple of hours. the streets of san jose will be closed as they come around to the finish line. but a great way to start your thanksgiving because then you can eat guilt free. you have already burned all those calories you are going to eat later on. >> noelle, a valid point. burn the calories and dive in when you are ready to go with family and friends. >> i like the hat. i. speaking of the weather, steve, we are in good shape today? >> fine today. >> okay. >> pro bely most of friday. >> good. >> saturday. a lot of high clouds.
8:34 am
hazy skies. patchy fog. some of that fog very thick but not widespread. just a few reports. so overall just a little haze and high clouds today, but dry. temperatures a little warmer on the lows. they will be about the same on the highs. maybe down a degree or two. probably not the mid 70s for downtown oakland because we are loseing that easterly breeze. for the 49ers today about the same. high clouds. 64 at kickoff. 50s into the second half. the first system running into a mountain of high pressure, which is about 30.50 inches of mercury on wednesday. if you have been having headaches this week, that might have been the reason. just really strong high pressure. well, this system is not doing much, but it is weakening that high pressure system and there we are going to wait, hopefully everything swings in underneath. sunday the system may kind of clowe down a little bit and take its time getting here. there is no consensus on the forecast models yet. a lot of high clouds. temperatures will continue to struggle a little bit on these
8:35 am
highs due to the cloud cover to the north. to the south should be upper 60s to near 70s. a lot of 40s. had a few 30s. those look like they are gone now. not much of a breeze. out of east, that's relaxing a little bit. 40s on the temps. petaluma, lake port, everyone is really close. a lot of rain in the pacific northwest. not for us. hopefully it will swang in here. this is the rainfall projection. nothing today. friday this is a little quick but late friday night into saturday. saturday it looks like a rain day. so far they have not cut back on the totals yet. we will see. sunday could be a cloudy, windy day or more rain. approximate if it slows down or stalls, it will be more cloudy than windy. high clouds today. 60s and 70s on the temps. probably the last day on any 70s because by tomorrow a lot more cloudiness. rain late friday. saturday morning into saturday about noon and then we will ease into sunday, monday, tuesday.
8:36 am
>> looks like more than an inch? >> i have seen through next wednesday, you know, three to six inches of rain. >> wow. three to six? >> three to six in spots. santa cruz mountains. so higher elevations. some forecast models don't bring anything in until tuesday or wednesday, which would throw that out of whack. >> yeah. all right. so you still got to fine-tune this. you are massaging it, as you like to say. >> i am. well, sal is off this morning, but steve said, you know, he has been tweeting. so he is up and watching us. we are keeping a close eye on bay area traffic for you, sal. you are welcome to come back. in the east bay, as you see there, 26 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. normally at this time of the morning on a weekday this bay bridge toll plaza would be backed up. cars are going the speed limit. here we are at the toll plaza and on to the span into san
